|My new birding friend ~ Not the Hedgehog!|
|Red-backed Shrike ~ Plenty within the locality|
The birding was more quality than quantity with the highlights a Goshawk carrying prey and a Bonelli's Eagle, which flew low over the treetops. We did manage to hear a distant Olive-tree Warbler, another bird which like the Great Reed Warbler has a gruff, raucous voice but annoyingly never managed to connect.
